How much is that doggie?

Students investigate the total cost of owning a dog or a cat. They decide what type of pet might be best and discuss what it means to be a responsible owner of a pet. They Brainstorm as many costs of ownership that these may be repeating costs, like food, or one-time costs, like the purchase price.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
